From: Sicily, Italy
Tasting Notes: Pale straw-green with golden tinges. Aromas and flavors of lemon, gooseberry, crystalized nectarine peel, and sage. Bright and crisp on entry, then rounder and more mellow, with a nicely persistent hint of lime and white flowers on the solid finish. The estates' best and coolest site is devoted to Grillo, so that should tell you something... This is barrel fermented in oak and acacia tonneaux. -Vinous
Pairing: Enhanced aromas and freshness show intensity and elegance. Vegetarian pasta dishes or seafood stews are a favorite pairing as the delicate flavors pair well with the body of the Grillo.
Located on Sicily’s western-most coast near the town of Marsala, Caruso & Minini boasts a history that harks back to the late 1800s when Antonio Caruso bought the company to grow grapes for the nearby Marsala factories. The company was passed through subsequent generations until Nino Caruso finally decided to begin making and bottling his own wine in the mid-1900’s. In 2004, Stefano Caruso joined forces with Mario Minini of Lombardy to launch the present-day winery, producing wines.
